[APP] - EZOverClock to 1.6 ghz

Greetings,
I've made a little app for setting the CPU speed on the TF201 up to 1.6 ghz. It may be the easiest overclocker yet.

Step 1. Install the Apk.
Step 2. There is no step 2.

Once this application is installed, you can switch speeds as usual using the ASUS statusbar. The speeds become (by default, but there is a configuration menu) as follows:
Power save: 1.0 ghz
Balanced: 1.3 ghz
Performance: 1.6 ghz

Root is required, but a locked bootloader is fine. The app makes no permanent changes to anything, and uninstalls cleanly (although a reboot may be required after uninstall)

Enjoy.

WOW THANKS! This is exactly what i was looking for! I wanted a overclock option without a locked boot without a ROM. Just until i make sure my Prime is a keeper. I am currently having HDMI out probs after .15.

But this makes me happy for now

I'll report back and see what i get on Quadrant.

We won't get over 1.6 until we get some custom kernels that support it. This is just using the built in steps of the chip. Asus disabled them but the files are still there to enable them so this is just using those.

Getting to 1.6 is fairly easy since the Asus kernel mostly supports that speed already. Going higher than 1.6 requires intrusive meddling with the kernel frequency tables. It's certainly possible, and something I want to do, but it will take time to research and develop.

That's right, although it can also be done with kernel modules, for the locked-bootloader crowd. That's how I'm doing it since I haven't unlocked my own bootloader yet.

you said this makes no permanent changes but does this hold after a reboot or power down. meaning after I install app, if I were to power down or reboot, will your settings still hold or be reapplied without me having to do anything? . this method seems similar to how Diamondbacks did in virtuous rom. changed the Asus quick settings to these speeds.

app works great just installed. really like this kind of overclocking. plus love how I can change the default profile speeds myself. I changed your balanced back to 1.2Ghz. left the others like you had it. 1.2Ghz is best of both speed n power. if I really want power I just hit performance mode n jump to 1.6ghz. I may change balanced back to 1.3Ghz. but I know that burns a lil more battery than 1.2ghz. plus I hate how powersavings decreases contrast and sharpness quality. that's what I like about this app, CHOICES. I can set up how o see fit. I left you a thanks.

looking forward to a kernel method of overclocking even higher like you said. on a locked bootloader.
